This Firestone factory and warehouse was built from 1927-1928. It was designed by Alexander Curlett and Claude Beelman. The plant was used to manufacture smaller tires with the larger ones produced in Akron, OH. Over time, the complex grew to 40 acres. The plant closed in 1980. The building now houses East Los Angeles College. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, and 3. [map]

This Firestone store goes by the name of Cox Bros. Tire Service. The company was established in 1937. I don't know how old this building is. These photos are from 2014 and 2015. In 2018, the building was repainted gray and white. The sign was also restored. [map]

TF Tire & Service
Tulare, CA
This Firestone sign is located on the roof of a TF Tire & Service store. This location opened as a Firestone location in 1952. The name "TF" was derived from Tulare Firestone. [map]

Ventura, CA

2008:

2012:
This Firestone location is still operating. The building appears to be from the 1920s or 1930s. I have not seen the Firestone shield logo with a tire and shell, or the wave-like scroll, on any other Firestone. The building was repainted between 2009 and 2012. New backlit plastic signs were also installed then. [map]
